Cape Town – FNB’s Apple iPad Mini deal is now available from the bank with 500MB of free 3G data every month for 24 months and 5GB of free ADSL data every month.

This offer is available to anyone wishing to open a new FNB personal cheque account before the end of April 2013. The standard account activation and switching requirements, including salary and debit orders switching will apply, to qualify for the benefits.

Kartik Mistry, head of Smart Devices at FNB’s Core Banking Solutions said: "We have noted customers’ requests to include data with our offer. We will deliver the SIM card with the device for customer convenience; the data will also be loaded on activation of the card."

In addition, FNB is offering a 10% discount on the retail price of the iPad mini and will continue to offer the repayment terms over 24 months with zero additional interest, fees or charges.

“With all the free data every month, customers will be able to do their banking, emailing and social media updates upon activation of the SIM card, at no extra cost. The deal is worth over R5 000 in data and device discounts over the 24 month period”, Mistry said.

The cost of data in South Africa is of great concern and users of social networks are often hesitant to upload images on mobile devices because of the cost. Prepaid data bundles can cost consumers anything from R75 per month to R119.

FNB offers for the Apple iPad Mini with Wi-Fi start at R195 per month.
